KUALA LUMPUR: The trading of Lingkaran Trans Kota Holdings Bhd (LITRAK) and Gamuda Bhd securities has been suspended after the two companies received conditional letters of offer from Amanat Lebuhraya Rakyat Bhd (ALR), with ALR offering to acquire all the securities of four highway concession companies - KESAS, SPRINT, LITRAK, and SMART.
"ALR conditionally offers to purchase all the securities of LITRAK based on an enterprise value of RM2.12 billion as at Dec 31, 2021 and ALR conditionally offers to purchase all the securities of SPRINT (Sistem Penyuraian Trafik KL Barat Holdings Sdn Bhd) based on an evaluation value of RM1.81 billion,” LITRAK said in a stock exchange filing.
SPRINT is a 50 per cent associate company of LITRAK.
The company further said that the offers shall remain open for acceptance until 5 pm on April 30, 2022.
LITRAK had received approval from Bursa Malaysia Securities Bhd for the company's request for suspension in the trading of its securities on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad with effect from 9 am to 5 pm on Monday, April 4, 2022 pending the release of the material announcement.
